*test on my real webserver*
*dance of joy*
This works! Beautifully, since it doesn't care what the webserver is,
only that it's got PHP... Thank you so much! It's so bloody simple
and obvious that I cannot see why I couldn't think of it...It never
occured to me that there would *not* be an error for calling a PHP
file when CSS was expected...even though I know that said PHP file's
purpose is to emit CSS.
I shall have to write the people who posted the original trick, and
give them this one in return, if you wouldn't mind...
Somebody else talked about giving their brain a processor upgrade...I
think I could use one too...
I'm going to rezip and upload this, and then go off and wash dishes
while grinning so hard that my face hurts.
